A fun alternative to a typical city tour, this Ottawa haunted history tour takes you to the city’s top sites like Rideau Canal, the Commissariat Building, and more to learn the spooky stories that set them apart. After-dark departure times and a professional storyteller make for a spooky night out on the town.
What to Expect
Make your way to an easy-to-find meeting point in downtown Ottawa to start your ghost tour. Follow your guide through the historic downtown en route to top landmarks like the Fairmont Château Laurier, Rideau Canal, and Commissariat Building Bytown Museum while learning about the city’s spooky past.

A professional storyteller guide brings haunted history to life as you walk to the Lisgar Collegiate Institute, a haunted high school, and more. Ideal for group bonding or a funky history tour, it also offers two after-dark departure times that fit into your schedule.

Tour concludes near original departure point.

Spooky and Amazing! Worth it!

I did the original walk on Friday, April 13th. My tour guide, Remy, was fantastic. She told us stories about Fairmont, Rideau Canal, schools and restaurants. All the information is accurate and narrated first hand to the organisers. It's a must-do, not very scary but...More

Good but hard

The walk was fun with fun stories. The staff was friendly. However, several people in the group were smoking and it was getting on us and some children nearby. Me and those teens were constantly trying to fan ourselves. Changing position was not helping because...More
